What went wrong?

I get crashes with PTgui and current cvs. So I have compiled
wine20050419. Both PTgui and autopano seem to work with that.

I leave aside why it crashes with current cvs for now, but it does look
like a problem.

Here is what I did:

- start PTgui with "wine ptgui.exe";
- Under Options->Plugins fill in the path of the autopano.exe;
- Press the Add button, and select 1.jpg and 2.jpg from the "Tutorial"
- Under Plugins start autopano;
- In the console I get a lot of output which seems all OK:

  Found 2 pictures
      0 -> 1.jpg
      1 -> 2.jpg
  Timing : 9.77 ms

KEYPOINT DETECTION [ Algorithm : standard SIFT ]
  1.jpg -> 640x480 320x240 160x120 80x60 -> 644 Keys
  2.jpg -> 640x480 320x240 160x120 80x60 -> 910 Keys
  Timing : 9.946 s
  Force every picture to be in the same panorama
  pictures : 0 1 
    Writing Project file 

Total Time : 10.81 s

- In the PTgui I get a message box  "Autopano found 20 new control
points. Do you want to add them?' I click OK;
-Under the button "Control Points" I can inspect them and everything
looks OK.

Would this have failed for you? If I need anything else to do, give me
some simple instructions.
